Best Bet: NIPPY W HANOVER (2nd)

Spot Play: THE RIGHT MOVE (6th)

Race 1

(1) SEA VENTURE was quite dull in his last start, but now Brennan makes his return on the pacing gelding and catches a weak group. (4) STAY UP LATE was facing better of late and in his last try he had some trouble early and lost all chance. (3) JC KINGDOM should fare well from the 3-hole.

Race 2

(5) NIPPY W HANOVER is clearly knocking at the door based on his last three outings. (4) MY IDEAL HANOVER raced evenly to land fourth money last out. (1) RIVER RUNS THRU IT might make some headway with the rail.

Race 3

(1) CHEYENNE SEEBER closed fast to grab the show spot last time out and now he receives the pole position tonight; gets the call. (3) JUSTICE NY WAY was very game but no one was going to catch the winner in his last try. (5) SANDESTIN HANOVER leaves the 8-hole and could make some noise in here.

Race 4

(7) DIABANDO got the job done via the pocket route last time around. Gelding appears to be heading in the right direction and even with the move to door number 7, he can take another. (4) WESTERN BAYAMA showed good pace against better last out. (1) SKYFUL OF LIGHTERS gets post relief and that could help his cause.

Race 5

(2) HERETIC FRANCO N gets the best of the draw and this pacing mare appears to have good speed. With a well rated drive she can make tonight a winning one. (1) KAMWOOD LAUGHTER N is on the drop-down and moves to the fence; likely favorite. (6) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY If you throw out her last start, this 6-year-old has a proven winning record; watch out.

Race 6

(6) THE RIGHT MOVE showed some punch at the half before tiring in the stretch drive last time out. Mare has tactical speed and with a favorable trip she can greet the cameraman for pictures. (2) STRINGS came down the center of the track to nail down the victory in her recent outing. (3) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM flashed speed and lost glory by only a neck last out.

Race 7

(4) COPPER COAST A faced some of these last time around and all this gelding needs is a perfect spot to strike and score, but the trip will be everything. (7) MONTEZUMA BLUECHIP was a fast closing second last time around and he is knocking at the door; threat. (6) LUCKY MCTRUCKY moves down in class and Bartlett has the assignment.

Race 8

(7) MODERN XHIBIT put in a sharp effort for win honors last time out. Dube signs on to another but Sears gets the call on this 7-year-old gelding. With another fine trip it could be game over for the rest. (4) SHADIOS is on a roll scoring his third straight victory. Hopefully the return to the rail for (1) STOMPIN TOM CREEK will be what he needs to get back to his winning ways.

Race 9

(8) SHADY CITY put in a mild bid in his last try and this gelding is very capable of moving forward despite drawing the far outside slot. (4) STONEBRIDGE TONIC took the pocket route home for all the marbles last time out. (2) GOTTA LAUGH AGAIN can be a big threat from the 2-hole; maybe.

Race 10

(4) HI HO STEVERINO has good tactical zip and it is good to see Bartlett stays with this gelding; threat at his best. (1) ROETHBLISSBERGER has been in the exacta in his last four starts and retains the fence. (3) REAL FLIGHT left from the 7-hole and was sitting in the pocket to get up for the score recently.

Race 11

(3) ZORGWIJK NOVA has not gotten the job done since April 29, but the good news is this gelding appeared to be coming around when he showed good speed last out. A turnaround is not out of the question with Bartlett at the helm. (7) LATOKA was second best last out, but will have to do his best from the 7-hole. (1) PIG HUNT has put in three fine efforts at Saratoga and stays on the fence; not out of this.

Race 12

(2) SENTIMENTAL LADY closed strongly to grab the victory three starts back and this mare has seen the cameraman five times this year. With a meltdown of the early leaders, she could mow them down for all the glory. (3) KAITLYN RAE has been very sharp this year hitting the board in 6 of 8 tries; big threat. (4) JAG OUT took the lead at the half but did not have enough gas in the tank and had to settle for the show spot last time around.
